Alphabet exchange

I took part in an alphabet exchange. I stitched Bent Creek's Neighborhood Row to Leena. I finished it as a pillow. I'm not sure what count the linen is, maybe 32ct, stitched 2 over 2. I also sent some threads as we sent something that begins with the same letter as the recipients name (L for lanka, thread in Finnish).

This is what I got from Ritva. I love that flatfold, it's really beautiful! And I got "Sari's ort basket" as something beginning with S. :) She has dyed the cotton herself. Beautiful colour!


I am so happy with this exchange. Everyone got so beautiful things, can't wait for the next exchange. :)
